Hi Jachym,

I have given talks on OSGeo and open data.  I am sorry to hear that you 
believe I said that about the foundation.  I do believe we've discussed 
this in face-to-face board meetings before, so maybe that is where you 
heard this?  I remember a discussion of adding open data into our 
foundation's mission statement, which I believe we did.

President Emeritus, OSGeo
